Austin started racing in 2003 in the
Blue Plate Class at Highway 120 Speedway because his Dad raced for years
and Austin had an interest in the sport so he started out in Go Karts.
His first win was that same year. Career highlights include over
80 wins in Karts, Blue Plate - Jr. unrestricted, Track Championship at
Riverside Speedway in Karts and his first car win in July of '06.
The thrill of racing for Austin is the
rush and the thrill of winning. His most exciting racing moment
was leading the race with a 4 way tie for the Points Championship at
Riverside Speedway and Austin came out on top. He's most proud of
his numerous wins and the places he's traveled to race.

Of racing, Austin says, "It's one of the
funnest, most exciting sports I've ever taken part in!".
